Retail Jewelers of America, Inc. Ab­breviated RJA. A national trade or­ganization that was formed in 1957 upon merger of the American Na­tional Retail jeweler's Association and the National jeweler's Associa­tion. The purpose of the organization is to promote the general welfare, and prosperity of the retail jewelry industry. Over 42 state jewelers' as­sociations are affiliated with the RJA; membership in a state association automatically establishes member­ship in the RJA, and vice versa, thus creating a national team of retail jewelers. The organization sponsors and manages two National Jewelry Trade Shows per year in New York City. Headquarters: 10 Rooney Cir­cle, West Orange, New Jersey 07052.
